Here’s everything you need to know in order to perform the Michigan in NHL 24.

How to do the Michigan in NHL 24

There are two ways to perform the Michigan or Lacrosse shot in NHL 24, depending on the control scheme you are using: the Skill Stick scheme or the new Total Control input system.

You can perform a successful Michigan with Trevor Zegras who is one of the most skilled players in NHL 24.

For players using the classic Skill Stick system, you should ensure that your player has the puck on the forehand and press the following:

  • Xbox: Forehand + LB (Hold) + RS (Hold it while rotating it counterclockwise)
  • PlayStation: Forehand + L1 (Hold) + R3 (Hold it while rotating it counterclockwise)

Finally, those players that are using the new Total Control system just need to Hold Y / Triangle and then release, aiming towards the Goalie.

That’s all you need to do to perform the Michigan in NHL 24 and score quite easily. However, it’s important to note that to score a Michigan in NHL 24, you must have possession of the puck behind the goaltender and pay attention to two things.

Firstly, you need to know whether your player is left-handed or right-handed, as mentioned in the Skill Stick scheme, the player should carry the puck on the forehand.

The second tip to consider in order to score a goal with this Lacrosse shot is the position of the goalie. You need to deceive the goalkeeper and the opposing defense by showing the puck on one side and performing the Michigan on the other side, almost like a magic trick.
